Audience Reviews for Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas

  • Dec 25, 2008
    One of my favorite Christmas stories from childhood.

    Loved this when I was a kid and even then it kind of depressed me. I know it was the 70s but how the hell can anyone get excited about earning 50 cents or even winning $50? I'll admit that's my own baggage. The old school puppetry is still great and the Riverbottom Nightmare Band still rocks 30 years later. I'll openly admit that most of the appeal for Emmet Otter's Jugband Christmas is its nostalgia but it's still fun (even if it is hokey) and doesn't really overstay its welcome.

    Christmas just isn't Christmas without watching an Otter play the washboard.
